Movement, Mindset & Mantra – Virtual Retreat

Preparing my feel good props and tech for my very first online retreat – Movement, Mindset and Mantra 🌷 ⁣ It’s was such a pleasure to plan this with @laurenbradyyoga – just exactly how we want it, with so much thought and love poured in! I mean, two Manchester people, living in Barcelona, sharing so much passion- what’s not to love! It can be hard sometimes when I am so used to working alone, to be able Read more…

Mental Health

Mental Health…⁣It means something different to everyone. My own has been a journey in itself. An ongoing one, that still has to be taken care of, and worked through. ⁣⁣It meant really starting to understand myself, and that was scary, noticing the patterns, behaviour, and how they affected every single aspect of my life and thoughts. Even more confronting was acknowledging that I was way too good at faking it…⁣In my brain, the highs, and Read more…

A Whole New World..

Life after lockdown. How will it be? Here in Spain, we have just been told that from this weekend, we will be allowed out again. Just for an hour per day, for exercise, probably within our own allocated times, and within 1km of our respective homes. Whilst I am excited at the prospect of a nice walk outside, it brought up something unexpected for me, I am not sure how to pinpoint the emotion – Read more…

JUST DO IT!

I have to get this off my chest. Because – all of what’s happening in this world is scary, unknown, uncertain, and if it’s proved one thing, it’s that we just really never know what’s around the corner… ⁣I say this lots, but really, LIVE YOUR LIFE. Take a risk. Take a chance. Be happy, or at least do more of what makes you happy, because it’s so short. In an instant everything can be Read more…

Thrombosis UK

Most of you who know me, know that in 2012 and 2013, I suffered from blood clots in my lungs, pulmonary embolisms – I’m very lucky to have got to where I am today, but the road hasn’t been an easy one…  I’ll be on medication for life, and the damage to my heart and lungs still remains, although I’ve been able to reverse so much, which is why I’m so passionate about helping others.

Earth Day!

It’s Earth Day!! And inevitably whilst in lockdown, it’s got me reminiscing of nature, all those times Mother Nature has had me in complete awe. ⁣ ⁣All these pictures were taken in Canada, in August last year. Truly one of my favourite, and most beautiful places we have ever visited! ⁣ ⁣Whatever you do to help the world, let’s start by being kind to each other, not shaming each other for the efforts we are Read more…

Fitness & Lockdown

Right, I don’t know about you, but I am getting 92374 notifications daily from people going live with their workouts on instagram, Barbara from down the road is doing a 10 minute squat hold, another dude is getting a 6 pack for lockdown, and literally every Tom, Dick and Harry is sharing their workouts. Wow. Even as a trainer I am a bit intimidated… Whilst I know these people mean well, I do also understand Read more…

Feeling Anxious

During this lockdown period we are experiencing due to Covid19, it can become increasingly an anxious time for so many people. Including me. I have had my fair share of WTF moments since this started. The other day, it was simply hearing an ambulance outside, it set me off into a spiral of anxious feelings, wishing I could do something for people, feeling helpless, sorry for the medical staff, thankful they help us. Bamn, a Read more…

Support Small Businesses

Here we are, a lot of the world, at home. For a small business like mine, it is going to have a big effect. Not only can I not open my beloved studio, that I love to be in, but I can’t earn a living, as I usually do. Whilst so many people are in a difficult position right now, both financially and mentally, I would really like to encourage you to support your local Read more…

COVID 19

This virus. Man, what a weird scenario we have found ourselves in!? Here in Spain, we went into official lockdown on 16th March, I went into self isolation when I started developing symptoms of this virus on 12th March. A normal week at the studio, I had seen a few people who had shown signs and symptoms, but at this point it was nothing more than a myth, something that probably wouldn’t affect us all, Read more…
